Rosario Dawson SPLITS from Cory Booker after 3 years, plans to stay as good friends
An insider close to the A-list couple Rosario Dawson and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has revealed some heartbreaking news. As per the source, the power couple has called it quits. After a three-year-long relationship, the former couple has ended their romantic relationship on terms and plan to stay 'good friends'
Reportedly, the duo met at a fundraiser in 2017, organized for then Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous. Dawson, 42, was in a relationship when she first met Booker. However, in the following year when they reconnected, Booker was eager and simultaneously nervous to ask Dawson for her number.
In a 2019 meeting at a Town Hall, Booker, 52 told CNN, "I had one of those really awkward experiences. I am United States Senator, and I had to get up the courage to walk up to her and ask her for her phone number." He continued, "I had trouble asking for her phone number...I think I said something really stupid like, 'Uh, how would I get in touch with you?' He explained that Dawson gently said something on the lines of 'oh, you want my phone number?'.
Talking about what he was going through, Booker said, "And my insides were like, 'Hell, yeah!" The duo was first seen getting smitten kitten around each other during the Broadway show Dear Evan Hanson where allegedly Booker was singing 'I love you' to Dawson as they snapped some pictures with the cast backstage.
Soon, rumors surfaced that Dawson and Booker are together. In February 2019, Booker finally confessed that he was in a relationship. However, when questioned about who the lucky lady was, he declined to answer. On the radio show The Breakfast Club, he said, "I'm dating somebody really special. I got a boo."
Following this, in March 2019, Dawson confirmed the relationship to TMZ where she expressed how grateful she was to be dating somebody she 'respected, admired and loved so much.' By April of the same year, Booker was boldly shown off on Dawson's Instagram which led to millions of her fans and followers hyping the relationship.
On RuPaul's talk show in 2019 Booker even suggested that the two may get married. RuPaul then added that if Booker were elected, he would be the first unmarried President in a really long time. Booker said, "The swearing in isn't until the 21st of January, 2021. You never know what might happen between now and then."
Making up for their busy schedules and distances, the duo would often FaceTime each other and meet weekly, In 2020, they moved in together and Booker said, "This is the first time in my life I've really lived with somebody — and obviously Rosario and I are enjoying and adjusting to that, right?" He added, "I have not done that, really, as a bachelor, where I actually sit at a table and just, like, breathe and eat a meal."
Reportedly, the distance has resulted in Dawson and Booker going their separate ways on good terms.
